Overview

Admiral John “Black Jack” Geary was revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, he is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet—and himself—in harm’s way... 
An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary’s fears. Attacked without warning, he orders the fleet to jump star systems—only to enter the crosshairs of another hostile alien armada. Ignoring the First Fleet’s peaceful communications, this species sends its ships into battle while it guards the exiting jump point with a fortress of incalculable power. Now Geary must find a way to reach the jump point without massive casualties—even though the enigmas could be waiting on the other side…

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

There is no mistaking the fact: Admiral "Black Jack" Geary and his battered fleet are completely overmatched and outnumbered by the hostile aliens. The enemy has gigantic super-battleships; Geary's rickety flotilla threatens to break down even in the midst of battle; and even their path of retreat is blocked by the superior force. Jack Campbell's new Lost Fleet novel offers convincing sci-fi warfare, compelling main characters, and escalating suspense. Now in mass-market paperback and NOOK Book.

Kirkus Reviews
Continuing the deep-space adventures of Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary and company (Beyond the Frontier: Dreadnaught, 2011, etc.). Having defeated--or at least fought to a standstill--the alien "enigmas" in the previous book, Geary has taken his battered fleet through hyperspace only to run headlong into a second hostile alien race. While attempting to unravel the politics behind the Alliance's orders that has brought him here, Geary must contend with a race that numbers in the tens of billions; worse, they have super-battleships vastly larger than anything he can bring to bear--and they have technology that can divert kinetic energy weapons. Another big problem for Geary and his captains is that their ships were built only for a limited operational lifetime, and that limit is rapidly being reached, with equipment failure an ever-present danger. Still waiting in the wings: a third star-faring alien race. Even if Geary can find some way to cope, the fleet is still a long way from home, with both the enigmas and the remnants of the Syndics between them and their destination. And when--if--they do get home, Geary isn't sure he can trust anyone in the Alliance. Campbell describes the battles--and there are plenty of them--clearly and precisely, but conveys no visceral sense of what it feels like to be in one. The tension racks up with never a hint that Geary feels it or that the good guys might actually lose. And along with some memorably intriguing aliens, the human characters are plentiful rather than highly developed. We're offered little hint of how any of this advanced technology might actually work. Maybe you have to read all the previous books. Absorbing rather than gripping, although neither series addicts nor newcomers will be disappointed.

    Excellent Read

    Former Military. When the reference for "ultimate repair tool" was brought up I almost choked laughing. I knew immediately what was being talked about. Jack was right about something else too: When you want to know something...ask a Chief....just don't ask where X item came from.

    This one is just too expensive for me. $4.99 would be about right.

    If you like space Sci Fi. . .

    Bought my first Lost Fleet book @ the grocery store, and I have read all of them because I couldn't stop. So well researched, and just enough human drama to make the story very real. Even though it's far into the future and takes place in space, story so well written could be a diary of true events.

    Awesome. . . Again. . .

    These books are always great but this one really stands out. The introduction of new alien species has made things a lot more interesting. There was also a great line in the book that made me laugh. Something about how if ever stories were written about the lead character that they would probably illustrate the book cover with him in a suit of armor . . . even though he never wears armor. LOL. So true! It's like the illustrator is illustrating a whole other series that has nothing to do with the Lost Fleet. :-)
